When it comes to applying in the UK for the January 2020 entry, students are often unsure of what it entails. Studying in the January (spring) session merits the same results as studying in September (fall). Majority of the universities in the UK offer a number of courses in the January/February session, and believe it helps with increasing the number of students coming to study with them. To make sure that the course you are applying for is available for the January session, you can check our dedicated page for January 2020 entry.
Why you should start at a UK University in January 2020
Here’s why you should consider applying for higher studies in the January 2020 session.
Perfect alternative to the September 2019 intake
If you needed more time for your application essays, cover letter & research, pre-university study, arranging funds or applying for your visa, the January 2020 session is perfect for you. Also for students who want a bit of a break after completing their previous studies without taking a gap year, the January intake is an ideal option.
Ease of applying later
September intake is often overcrowded and it is possible to get lost in the crowd. Chances are that your application will stand out more in the January applications, where there are a lesser number of students applying and the universities have more of your undivided attention. Applying for a visa for January intake is also less stressful as there is a lower backlog and the visa queues and wait time is not as long.
Scholarships and financial aid available for January 2020 courses
Several UK universities are offering financial aid and scholarships, especially meant for students enrolling in January 2020 undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. Scholarships range from £1,000 to £10,000 and are easy to apply for all international students, provided they get admitted into a university.
More job prospects
There are fewer people entering the job market along with you in January. You could have better prospects in existing jobs as well as the fresh jobs that come with the turn of the year. The New Year marks new beginnings, and applying to a UK university could be just the change you were looking for to kick start your success journey in 2020.
